Tottenham Sack Pochettino, Hire Mourinho As New Manager

Tottenham sacked manager Mauricio Pochettino on Tuesday, after five years in charge of the Premier League club and have now appointed Jose Mourinho as the new manager.

Spurs have made a disappointing start to the current campaign and are currently 14th in the Premier League.

Pochettino was appointed in May 2014 and did not win a trophy in his time in charge of the north London club. He did lead the club to the Champions League final last season, where they lost to Liverpool in Madrid.

Former Chelsea and Manchester United boss Mourinho has signed a contract until the end of the 2022-23 season.

“The quality in both the squad and the academy excites me,” said the 56-year-old Portuguese. “Working with these players is what has attracted me.”

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy said: “In Jose we have one of the most successful managers in football.”

Levy added: “He [Mourinho] has a wealth of experience, can inspire teams and is a great tactician.

“He has won honours at every club he has coached. We believe he will bring energy and belief to the dressing room.”

Mourinho still has a home in London and won three Premier League titles – in 2005, 2006 and 2015 – as well as one FA Cup in two spells at Chelsea.
